    Every time I go into the pen of 1 roo and 4 hens this one hen a sdw oegb flies up on my back and walks up to my shoulder while I am cleaning and refilling their waterer. Why does she do this? The roo in there with them gets a little loud when she does this and all the other hens stop and look at her like she is crazy. I was just thinking she might want to be petted so I give her a rub down and she just climbs right back up there.

    Maybe she wants the best view of your strange unchicken-like behavior, oh featherless one?

    I know its not really the same thing.. but whenever I'm bent over doing something, my conures always come over to climb around on my back and sometimes end up on my head, peering down at whatever I'm doing.
